Cheney and Kinzinger Only Two Republicans to Back Censuring Paul Gosar

Representatives Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) are the only two Republicans to back censuring Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and are expected to vote for a resolution today that would take away his committee seats for posting an animated video that showed him killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and attacking President Joe Biden.

That the two Republicans will vote to censure Gosar is not a surprise.

Cheney told The Associated Press last week that she supports censuring Gosar “for his continued indefensible activities.” Kinzinger, meanwhile, tweeted yesterday that the House has “to hold Members accountable who incite or glorify violence, who spread and perpetuate dangerous conspiracies.”

We have to hold Members accountable who incite or glorify violence, who spread and perpetuate dangerous conspiracies. The failure to do so will take us one step closer to this fantasized violence becoming real.⁰⁰To be clear, I’ll be voting yes on the Gosar censure resolution. read more

Liz Cheney Raises $1.7 Million in Third Quarter of 2021

Liz Cheney on ABC's This Week

Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) came just shy of breaking her own $1.9 million fundraising record, raising $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2021 as she fends off a challenge from Harriet Hageman, an attorney who is running with the endorsement of former President Donald Trump. She’s raised over $5 million in total this year thus far.

“Rep. Cheney continues to receive historic levels of support because she is upholding her oath to the Constitution, delivering for the people she represents in Wyoming, and offering a serious path forward for the Republican Party,” Amy Edmonds, a senior adviser for Cheney’s campaign, said in a statement.

“She is humbled that so many are standing with her in this fight and she will never waver in her commitment to Wyoming or her determination to do what’s right for our country,”  she added.

Cheney angered her own party and was ousted from her leadership position in the House after she pushed back against Trump’s falsehoods about the 2020 general election. Trump had

issued a statement, more than three months after President Joe Biden took office, calling Biden’s victory “the big lie.”  read more

Liz Cheney to Serve as Vice Chair on House Select Committee Investigating Capitol Riot

Liz Cheney on ABC's This Week

Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) has been named the vice chair of the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot of January 6.

Cheney’s appointment was announced by Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the committee’s chairman.

“Her leadership and insights have shaped the early work of the Select Committee and this appointment underscores the bipartisan nature of this effort,” he said, lauding her “commitment” to get to the truth of the matter even as House Republicans continue to denigrate the committee and its purpose.

In a statement last week, Cheney said the committee would conduct a thorough, professional, and nonpartisan investigation.

“We owe it to the American people to investigate everything that led up to, and transpired on, January 6th. We will not be deterred by threats or attempted obstruction and we will not rest until our task is complete,” she said at the time. read more

Lauren Boebert Calls For Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney to Be Banned From the Republican Cloakroom

Back in 2016, the GOP ceded the Republican party to Donald Trump and they have never gotten it back. As a result, the new faces of the party are people like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert.

A tiny percentage of Republican lawmakers have tried to push back against the Trump takeover. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney are two of those members. Both are sitting on the 1/6 panel studying the insurrection.

Kinzinger and Cheney are also facing huge blowback from their party. Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called the duo “Pelosi Republicans.” And Lauren Boebert is now calling for the two members to be banned from the Republican cloakroom.

The freshman Colorado Rep. told reporters:

“These members should not be allowed in our closed door private meetings or even the Republican cloakroom. We had important meetings yesterday in the cloakroom. I saw Kinzinger in there. Why is he able to be part of those conversations while he goes back and confers with the opposition. Both of these politicians, Kinzinger and Cheney, have worked more with Pelosi than they have with myself, my colleagues or even [minority] leader McCarthy.” read more

WATCH: Liz Cheney Tears Into Fellow GOP’ers McCarthy, Scalise and Elise Stefanik

As horrible as the events of 1/6 were, the vast majority of Republican lawmakers would like people to forget about it. A select few GOP congresspeople were willing to investigate the matter.

Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney both accepted Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to participate in the 1/6 panel. And for their service to their country, they were branded “Pelosi Republicans.”

Still, as Cheney explained during a Tuesday appearance on CNN, she is willing to serve her country before she serves her party.

The Wyoming lawmaker was asked by Jake Tapper, “

These MAGA forces tried to steal the election once and they’re going to try again. And we don’t hear Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise and Elise Stefanik say, no, no, no, we would never do that again. There is zero attempt at reassuring people that what you are suggesting is not true.” read more

Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) appeared on “The Axe Files with David Axelrod” and denounced former President Donald Trump for committing what she said is the worst violation of the oath of office when he incited an insurrection against Congress on January 6.

As I said, I think what Donald Trump did is the most dangerous thing, the most egregious violation of an oath of office of any president in our history,” Cheney said on the episode, which was taped Saturday. “And so the idea that a few weeks after he did that, the leader of the Republicans read more

Report: Liz Cheney Has Spent Tens of Thousands on Security Detail Since Trump Impeachment Vote

Liz Cheney Fox News Sunday

Supporters of Donald Trump are more than willing to use violence to get their way. This became clear when a mob of Trump fans engaged in an insurrection on the Capitol building on January 6th.

And that means that opponents of the former president, whether they be Democrats or Republicans, have to take their security seriously. Liz Cheney, formerly the Chair of the House Republican Conference, recently became the face of the anti-Trump movement. And according to a new report from the Hill, she’s been paying big bucks to stay safe.

Jordan Williams writes, “Wyoming’s at-large representative paid $58,500 for security from late January to early March.

Of that money, Cheney paid $22,500 to security firm Command Executive Services roughly two weeks after her impeachment read more

WATCH: GOP Strategist Calls on Kinzinger, Cheney and Romney to Leave the Republican Party

Liz Cheney on Fox News Sunday

Donald Trump brought a lot of new people into the Republican party. Despite losing the 2020 election, he still received the second most votes in American history.

At the same time, many have left the party because of Trump. And that includes a number of former campaign strategists. On Wednesday Nicolle Wallace talked to some of those strategists about how the GOP should move forward.

Tim Miller told the host, “People who want their political careers to keep going are willing to lie for him. Some of these are working in politics, not just voters, but voters are part of a cult now. The cognitive dissonance doesn’t really matter now any more than the cognitive dissonance of what David Koresh was telling his followers what mattered to them. “

Matthew Dowd took it a step further. “First, Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, all who have spoken out need to leave their caucus,” he said,. “By staying in their caucus, all they are doing is enabling the fact that the people who committed the big lie will hold power in 2022. Yeah, it’s fine to say, ‘I have a big problem with this,’ but leave the caucus. You have to leave the cult in order to disempower the cult.”

Cindy McCain Tells Colbert: My Husband Would be Very Disappointed in Current GOP Cowardice

In some ways, it feels like John McCain was the last Republican willing to stand up to Donald Trump. And his close friends in the party, like Lindsey Graham, have turned their backs on what the Arizona senator stood for.

Cindy McCain has certainly continued her husband’s legacy of bucking Trump. She made a video for the Democratic National Convention and later publicly endorsed Joe Biden. That earned her a censure from the Arizona Republican party.

During a recent appearance on Stephen Colbert’s show, McCain discussed the GOP’s treatment of Liz Cheney. My husband, she said, would be very disappointed in the current state of the GOP.

It’s odd, now our party seems to be rewarding bad behavior and then trashing those who tell the truth and are honest about what’s actually going on,” she said. “We have lost our way. Our party is in such disarray right now.” read more

Mitch McConnell: I’m a Great Admirer or Liz Cheney

This weeks drama in the House of Representatives showed the differences in leadership style between Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell. McCarthy has been completely compromised by Donald Trump.

When the former president first incited the January 6th insurrection, McCarthy called him out. But after the House Minority Leader was called down to Mar-a-Lago, he came back to Washington fully on board with team Trump.

McConnell has largely ignored Trump and acted as if senate Republicans are completely prepared to move on without him. And when the Senate Minority Leader was asked about Liz Cheney, recently punished by McCarthy for bashing Trump, he paid her a nice compliment.

Fox News asked the Kentucky lawmaker if he still felt Cheney was an “important leader in our party and our nation?”

Well, there is no change,” he responded. read more

Cheney Vows to Keep Trump Out of Oval Office After GOP Removes Her from House Leadership

After House Republicans voted to oust Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her conference chair position––which effectively made her the third most powerful Republican in the chamber––Cheney vowed to do “everything I can” to keep former President Donald Trump from taking office again.

Cheney was removed for not backing the former president’s falsehoods about the 2020 general election. She issued a defiant statement after the GOP ousted her via voice vote.

“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again never gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” she said. “We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language. We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution. And I think it’s very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody that will be faithful to the Constitution.” 

She also criticized members of her own party for supporting the baseless claim that the election was fraudulent.

“We must go forward based on truth. We cannot both embrace the big lie and embrace the Constitution,” Cheney said. “The nation needs a party that is based upon fundamental principles of conservatism. And I am committed and dedicated to ensuring that that’s how this party goes forward and I plan to lead the fight to do that. We’ve got to get back to a place where we are a party that can fight for conservative principles that can fight for substance. We cannot be dragged backward by the very dangerous lies of a former president.”

No Greater Offense Than Honesty: Former GOP Senator Jeff Flake Pens Scathing Op-Ed Against His Party

When Donald Trump first took office, there was little Republican resistance against him. There was John McCain of course. There was also push-back from Tennessee’s Bob Corker.

But Jeff Flake was commonly the loudest Republican voice against Trump. The Arizona lawmaker retired in 2018 and has continued to distance himself from the GOP. Flake announced that he was endorsing Joe Biden for president in August of last year.

And the lawmaker has continued to speak out about what’s become of his party. On Tuesday, he wrote a scathing Washington Post op-ed about the treatment of Liz Cheney.

Flake began, “She (Cheney) will lose her position because she is refusing to play her assigned role in propagating the ‘big lie’ that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. Cheney is more dedicated to the long-term health of our constitutional system than she is to assuaging the former president’s shattered ego, and for her integrity she may well pay with her career.”

The former senator continued, “No, this is not the plot of a movie set in an asylum. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your contemporary Republican Party, where today there is no greater offense than honesty.”

"It is elementary to have to say this, but we did not become a great nation by believing or espousing nonsense, or by embracing lunacy. And if my party continues down this path, we will not be fit to govern."https://t.co/1Qz8QOuYfX read more

GOP Rep. Chip Roy Blasts Elise Stefanik For Not Being Conservative Enough

The Republican party is nowadays, the party of Donald Trump and white grievance. And if anyone speaks out against Trump’s ideals, they need to be punished immediately.

The latest member on the firing squad is Liz Cheney. While Cheney can’t lose her job as a congresswoman, GOP Reps. will soon remove her from her leadership position. And Trump’s pick for the new Chair of the House Republican Conference is Elise Stefanik.

According to those in the know, Stefanik has the votes to become the next chair. That does not mean, however, that all House Republicans are behind her. On Tuesday, Chip Roy (R-TX) wrote a memo slamming the New York congresswoman.

The Texas lawmaker sent a message to colleagues that read, “

We must avoid putting in charge Republicans who campaign as Republicans but then vote for and advance the Democrats read more

Joni Ernst Sticks Up for Liz Cheney, Accuses GOP Colleagues of Trying to Cancel Her

Joni Ernst admits Republicans are using impeachment to smear Biden

Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell have very different leadership styles. Since Trump left office in January, McConnell and Republican senators have barely mentioned him (outside of lap-dog Lindsey Graham). Kevin McCarthy and GOP congresspeople, however, mention Trump every chance they get.

And there is also a big difference in how GOP senators and congresspeople are treating the issue of Liz Cheney. Most Reps. have been more than willing to throw Cheney under the bus, happy to see her punished for his disloyalty to Trump. But on Monday, one of the most prominent Republicans in the senate came to the Wyoming congresswoman’s defense.

Joni Ernst told reporters, “I think it’s important that we not all be typecast as, you know, this opinion is OK to express, but this is not. I think we all have our own things that we want to talk about and express. I think that’s Ok, but at the end of the day we’ve got to come together as Republicans.”

McCarthy Announces GOP Will Vote on Whether to Oust Liz Cheney on Wednesday

In a letter to lawmakers, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced that House Republicans would vote on whether to oust Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) this Wednesday.

“This is no time to take our eye off the ball. If we are to succeed in stopping the radical Democrat agenda from destroying our country, these internal conflicts need to be resolved so as not to detract from the efforts of our collective team,” McCarthy wrote. “Having heard from so many of you in recent days, it’s clear that we need to make a change. As such, you should anticipate a vote on recalling the Conference Chair this Wednesday.

The contents of the letter were first reported by Punchbowl News.

Report: Trump Wants Elise Stefanik to Replace Cheney But His Supporters Hate Her

There’s a reason why Donald Trump has remained the most powerful figure in the Republican party and it has nothing to do with his political ability. It has to do with the former President’s rabid group of supporters and their willingness to do anything he tells them to.

So when Trump said he wanted Elise Stefanik to take Liz Cheney’s leadership position in Congress, it was expected MAGA world would fall in line. But they haven’t done so. In fact, there was significant push-back today to the idea of Stefanik become the next Chair of the House Republican Conference.

Lou Dobbs, the former Fox host who recently lost his job, sent out an article which attacked Stefanik. He captioned the message, “RINO Games Destroying the GOP: Elise Stefanik, GOP conference chair favorite, voted with Trump less than Liz Cheney.”

The idea of Stefanik was also criticized by Trump worlders like Ann Coulter, Raheem Kassam and former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis.

Like many others, the Columbia Bugle, a pro-Trump Twitter account, cited Stefanik’s voting record and tweeted, “Replacing Cheney with Stefanik is just replacing an America Last Republican with a slightly less annoying America Last Republican.”

WATCH: Meghan McCain Says Women Will Continue to Bolt the GOP if They Oust Liz Cheney

Meghan McCain‘s father John McCain was one of the most revered Republicans of his day. He was often referred to as a Maverick due to his willingness to buck the party line.

Liz Cheney attempted to be a post-Trump maverick back in January of this year. And for voting her conscience, she has been pilloried by the Republican party.

During Wednesday’s episode of The View, McCain’s daughter Meghan warned of consequences for the GOP if they remove Cheney from power within their party.

The host vowed that women voters will notice how Cheney was treated. “The message that’s being sent by the highest member of Republicans in Congress is that women like me and Liz Cheney, who refuse to bend the knee to President Trump but still remain loyal Republicans — we don’t have a place in this party.”

Joe Biden Laments Disarray in the GOP Ranks, “We Badly Need a Republican Party”

When Donald Trump was running for President in 2016, Lindsey Graham famously said, “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed and we will deserve it.”

Graham seems to have been right in his prediction, it just took half a decade. The GOP is currently roiled in extreme in-fighting. You are either a Donald Trump loyalist, or you are no longer a Republican. Just ask Liz Cheney.

Joe Biden was asked about the disarray today during a presser. When asked about the Cheney situation, he responded, “[the GOP is]trying to identify what it stands for.” He continued by saying the fighting is, “significant sort of mini-revolution going on. I’ve been a Democrat for a long time. We’ve gone through periods where we’ve had internal fights and disagreements. I don’t ever remember any like this.”

The President continued:

As one of your said on national television last night, we badly need a Republican party. We need a two-party system. It’s not healthy to have a one-party system. And I think the Republicans are further away from trying to figure out who they are and what they stand for than I thought they would be at this point.”

“They’re in the midst of a significant, sort of, mini-revolution going on in the Republican Party," Pres. Biden says.

McConnell Indicates He Has No Intention of Protecting Liz Cheney as the GOP Eat Their Own

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) appeared to try and distance himself from the controversy surrounding efforts by Republicans to oust Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) because she has refused to back former President Donald Trump’s falsehoods about the 2020 general election.

McConnell, when asked if he would help Cheney keep her position as conference chair, said that “100 percent of my focus is on stopping this new administration.” 

He also made a jab at Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), saying, “I think the best way to look at what this new administration—the president may have won the nomination, but Bernie Sanders won the argument,” a coded message that he believes the Biden administration  is “socialist.”

“What we have in the United States Senate is total unity from Susan Collins to Ted Cruz in opposition to what the new Biden administration is trying to do to this country,” he added.

Trump attacked McConnell and other Republicans earlier this morning; in a statement, he referred to McConnell as “gutless and clueless” while continuing to espouse fictions about the 2020 election result.

‘Had Mike Pence referred the information on six states (only need two) back to State Legislatures, and had gutless and clueless MINORITY Leader Mitch McConnell (he blew two seats in Georgia that should have never been lost) fought to expose all of the corruption that was presented at the time, with more found since, we would have had a far different Presidential result, and our Country would not be turning into a socialist nightmare!

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer: Liz Cheney’s Crime is “She Believes in the Truth”

Speaking to reporters, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) threw his support behind Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), whose Republican colleagues are trying to oust her from her conference chair position because she has refused to back former President Donald Trump’s falsehoods about the 2020 general election.

“I think Liz Cheney’s greatest offense apparently is she is principled and she believes in the truth,” Hoyer said during an appearance on The Washington Post’s Post Live. “She’s obviously a very conservative Republican from the state of Wyoming, so it’s not a question of ideology. It’s a question of cult of personality — that if you’re not 1,000 percent with Donald Trump, somehow you’re not a good Republican, you’re not worthy of being in leadership.”

“I think it’s a real weakness in the Republican Party that they have jettisoned their principles, jettisoned adherence to the truth and simply pandered to one individual: Donald Trump, who I would suggest was a terrible U.S. president who had no respect for the truth,” Hoyer added. read more

Former GOP Representative Barbara Comstock Urges Female Republicans Not to Become “Handmaidens” for the Party

Former Republican representative Barbara Comstock, who once represented the state of Virginia, defended Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) amid a push within the party to oust her from her position as conference chair because she called out former President Donald Trump for his baseless falsehoods about the 2020 general election.

Comstock urged female Republicans not to become “handmaids” for the party, a reference to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The novel––which was adapted into a 1990 film and a critically acclaimed Hulu series that debuted in 2017––tells the story of a woman who is forced into sexual slavery and forced to birth children under a totalitarian dictatorship that is experiencing a fertility crisis.

“All Liz Cheney did is say what Attorney General Bill Barr said, that there wasn’t election fraud. She would not embrace the big lie,” Comstock said in remarks to CNN‘s “New Day.”

“I think this is a mistake. It’s a bad message,” she added. “I say ‘whoa’ to any woman who wants to be a handmaiden to this and to get a leadership spot on the heels of really something that is unseemly. To embrace the big lie.”

“Word is out that House GOP leaders are looking to push Rep. Liz Cheney from her post as House Republican Conference Chair – their most senior woman in GOP leadership – for a litany of very Republican reasons: she won’t lie, she isn’t humble enough, she’s like a girlfriend rooting for the wrong team, and more,” the ad reads, referring to criticism of Cheney from Republican males.

Cheney responded shortly afterward with a statement of her own affirming that the 2020 general election “was not stolen.”

“Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system,” she wrote.

Donald Trump Jr. is Furious That Liz Cheney Fist Bumped Joe Biden Last Night

Joe Biden is known as an especially kind and affable person. And the current President  served in the United States senate for decades. Over that time period he made plenty of friends on both sides of the aisle.

So after Biden gave his 100 day speech on Wednesday night, he was congratulated by Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike. But before Biden even got to the stage, he received an encouraging fist bump from Liz Cheney.

The Wyoming congresswoman has had a target on her back since she chose to impeach Donald Trump for inciting the January 6th insurrection. Donald Trump has already promised to back a primary challenge against her in 2022.

So it’s not surprise that the President’s sycophantic son, Donald Jr., was irate over Cheney’s choice to fist bump Biden.

Trump Jr. took to Twitter to write, “‘Republican’ warmonger Liz Cheney gives Sleepy Joe a fist bump after he delivered a radical socialist vision for the future of America. So glad she’s in the GOP leadership, I guess they wanted to be more inclusive and put Democrats in there too?!?”

Liz Cheney Says Events of January 6th Should Disqualify Some Republicans From Running for President

Now that Donald Trump is out of office, many members of the GOP are focused on making sure the worst aspects of his presidency are forgotten about. They want to keep in the good graces of his voters, of course, but they also want to move the party forward.

A select few Republicans, though, have been willing to call out both Trump and his allies. Adam Kinzinger comes to mind. People like Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney have had moments of courage. But the Republican who has spoken out against Trump despite having the most to lose is Liz Cheney.

The Wyoming congresswoman has had a target on her back since her vote to impeach Trump. The former president has promised to back a primary candidate against her in 2022.

Cheney, though, does not seem afraid of the threats. She was recently asked about potential GOP presidential candidates in 2024. She told the New York Post:

“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House. I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view, that’s disqualifying.” read more

Former GOP Rep: I’d Take Liz Cheney Over Matt Gaetz in a Bar Fight Any Day

Back in January, Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney cast her vote to impeach Donald Trump. It was a principled moved by the Rep., one of the more powerful Republicans in Congress. Matt Gaetz, ever the Trump loyalist, went to her home state weeks later to hold an anti-Cheney rally.

And while Gaetz, dealing with significant issues, has gone silent, many other Republicans continue to take shots at Cheney. The latest was Rep. Mike Kelly who likened the Wyoming congresswoman to a girlfriend that had spurned him.

Former GOP Congressman Denver Riggleman, though, says he’d rather have Cheney in his corner over the Republican bootlickers any way. He told host Nicolle Wallace, “I know it’s hard to believe now but I was a bouncer back in the day, and I want to make a comparison here. You usually identify somebody in that environment, the guy or the gal who’s going to sit next to you in a bar fight.”

Liz Cheney Makes it Clear That Donald Trump Isn’t Invited to GOP’s Florida Retreat

Liz Cheney blames Democrats and impeachment for Syria

Since he left office, every move made by Donald Trump has been calculated. And the former President has a clear goal; stay in control of the Republican party.

Most GOP members have shown that they’re desperate for Trump’s approval. And that’s probably the right move. The former President’s endorsement will go a long way in most red states.

Trump has also made sure to stay in front of Republican voters. He constantly calls into Fox News shows to complain. And he did his first post-Presidency live interview with Sean Hannity last night.

There are, however, some Republicans who are willing to stand up to Trump. And the most prominent of them is Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the number 3 Republican in the House of Representatives.

During a Tuesday press conference, the topic of an upcoming GOP retreat in Florida came up. Cheney was asked if Trump would be invited to the event. “I haven’t invited him,” she bluntly replied.

There is no love lost between the two. Trump announced last week that he would be targeting Cheney with a hand-picked opponent in the next election. He said last week, “.

But Tucker Carlson has made a commitment to gaslighting his viewers, even if the evidence is right there in front of their faces. On Tuesday night, the Fox host said there is no evidence that QAnon even exists.

Carlson told his audience:

“So it’s worth finding out where the public is getting all this false information. This disinformation as we’ll call it. So we checked. We spent all day trying to locate the famous QAnon. Which in the end we learned is not even a website. If it’s out there, we couldn’t even find it. Then we checked Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Twitter ’cause we have heard she traffics in disinformation, CNN told us. But nothing there.”

Matt Gaetz Mocks Dick Cheney and Mitch McConnell in Visit to Liz Cheney’s Home State of Wyoming

Matt Gaetz sets up Rudy Giuliani

Donald Trump is no longer the President and spends most of his time at his Mar-a-Lago club. He has also lost the use of his Twitter account, which was until recently, his favorite way to connect with his supporters.

Still, the ex-President has his sycophants in Washington DC who are still pushing the message of Trumpism. And no one is a bigger Trump sycophant than Matt Gaetz.

On Thursday, the Florida Congressman flew to Wyoming to attack Liz Cheney. Cheney, a powerful member of Congress, voted to impeach Donald Trump just last week.

Gaetz not only mocked the Wyoming Rep. during his appearance, he took aim at other Republicans as well.

Our battle is no longer just Republican vs. Democrat,” said the Florida Rep, “it’s not just red team versus blue team. Absolutely not — we’ve got to put America first. Those are the old battles of yesteryear. But people have always come to the great frontiers of Wyoming to win the future — that’s why I’m here.”

Gaetz continued, “The truth is that the establishment in both political parties have teamed up to screw our fellow Americans for generations. The private insider club of Joe Biden, Mitch McConnellMitt Romney, Nancy Pelosi and Liz Cheney they want to return our government to its default setting: enriching them.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz: "This is my first time in Wyoming. I've been here for about an hour and I feel like I already know the place a lot better than your misguided representative, Liz Cheney." pic.twitter.com/ZncWZSJWeH read more

The Wyoming Republican Party Has Voted to Censure Liz Cheney Over Her Impeachment Vote

The Wyoming Republican Party has voted to censure Representative Liz Cheney over her vote to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting the Capitol insurrection. The censure resolution has been submitted to the Wyoming Republican Party’s State Central Committee for consideration.

“Representative Cheney has violated the trust of her voters, failed to faithfully represent a very large majority of motivated Wyoming voters, and neglected her duty to represent the party and the will of the people who elected her to represent them,” the resolution states.

Cheney, the House Republican Conference Chair, has faced significant opposition within her own party since she voted with nine other House Republicans to impeach the president. Several Republicans called for the party leadership to remove her entirely. Nevertheless, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy rejected those calls.

Cheney said President Trump “lit the flame” of the attack, which resulted in five deaths, including a Capitol Police officer.

“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States read more

Wyoming GOP Chair Says State Should Consider Secession

Over the course of a few months, the GOP has lost control of both the White House and the senate. With Democrats in complete control, there isn’t much Republican leaders can do to respond.

That doesn’t mean they aren’t going to try. Arizona, a long-time Republican stronghold, voted for Biden and has recently elected two Democratic senators. In response, the Arizona GOP censured Cindy McCain.

Recently the head of the Wyoming GOP, Frank Earthorne, hinted that he might want to take it a step farther than Arizona. During a recent appearance on Steve Bannon’s show, Earthorne said:

“We need to focus on the fundamentals that’s been stated in this broadcast, and that is what Wyoming is. We are straight-talking, focused on the global scene, but we’re also focused at home. Many of these Western states have the ability to be self-reliant, and we’re keeping eyes on Texas too and their consideration of possible secession. Now, they have a different state constitution than we do as far as wording, but it is something that we’re all paying attention to.” read more

Republicans in Disarray: Jim Jordan Wants Liz Cheney To Step Down From Leadership but Dan Crenshaw Has Her Back

Liz Cheney blames Democrats and impeachment for Syria

Early last year, an impeachment vote was held in the House. While the measure passed, no Republicans voted to impeach Donald Trump.

Today was a different story. All Democratic members of Congress voted to impeach Trump and they were joined by 10 GOP lawmakers.

The most interesting name among the Republican Reps was Liz Cheney from Wyoming. Cheney is the number 3 Republican in the House. She announced that she would be voting to impeach Trump on Tuesday night.

The decision drew immediate anger from some House Republicans. Among them was Trump sycophant and regular screaming embarrassment Jim Jordan. The Ohio Congressman told reporters, “We ought to have a second vote (for Conference Chair). The conference ought to vote on that.”

Matt Rosendale (R-MT) also blasted the Wyoming Rep. saying, “When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference, and ignored the preferences of Republican voters. She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as Conference Chair.”

Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger Come Out Strongly Against QAnon

Very few people know what the Republican party will look like when Donald Trump is gone. At this point, few seem willing to protect the GOP and its rightward surge. This was on display earlier this week when the President disavowed conspiracy theorist group, QAnon.

Like most times Trump finds himself in a controversy, there were very few Republicans willing to speak out about the issue. Two GOP congresspeople, however, came out strongly agaisnt QAnon in a rebuke to Trump.

QAnon has come into the general political consciousness thanks to supporters of the movement winning Republican nomination races. Marjorie Greene, in Georgia’s 14th District, is likely to become America’s first QAnon supporting congressperson.

Adam Kinzinger, a lawmaker from Illinois, is regularly willing to rebut Trump. Tagging the President in his tweet, he wrote, “Here is a reminder of QAnon’s track record, this is the first ‘drop’ that shows all the ‘insider knowledge.’ Let’s be clear, Complete BS. Whoever wrote this does not “love our country” they seek to mislead and destroy it.”

Trump Joins Attacks on Liz Cheney as House Republicans Try to Oust Her

Liz Cheney blames Democrats and impeachment for Syria

Donald Trump became the latest and most high profile Republican to attack Liz Cheney on Thursday. Several prominent members of the GOP have taken aim at her in recent days.

Cheney is chair of the House Republican Conference but some who consider her to be insufficiently pro-Trump have been seeking her ouster. Trump joined in this morning.

“Liz Cheney is only upset because I have been actively getting our great and beautiful Country out of the ridiculous and costly Endless Wars,” Trump tweeted.

Liz Cheney is only upset because I have been actively getting our great and beautiful Country out of the ridiculous and costly Endless Wars. I am also making our so-called allies pay tens of billions of dollars in delinquent military costs. They must, at least, treat us fairly!!! read more
